Website launches to support Lincs communities during crisis

A new website has been launched to support communities across Lincolnshire during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lincolnshire Together has been created by the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership, the Lincolnshire Resilience Forum and Business Lincolnshire.

It aims to support organisations in the health and care, education and voluntary sectors by connecting them with the business community in Greater Lincolnshire.

Businesses can post offers of support on the site and the coordinating local authorities and community organisations such as schools, charities and care homes can post requests for help.

Support is being offered in areas such as vehicles, hygiene, equipment, PPE, technology and professional services such as accountancy, leadership, HR, marketing, legal.

“As Lincolnshire responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are connecting businesses who can help with other organisations and communities who need support because of COVID-19,” said Ruth Carver, Chief Executive of the Greater Lincolnshire LEP.

“For charities, community groups and health and education organisations it’s a one-stop shop where you can ask for help. For businesses it’s an opportunity to tell these organisations what support you can offer.

“The Lincolnshire Together website will also publish good news stories about businesses in our region which have responded to the coronavirus in some way, such as supporting the national efforts in terms of PPE or by donating food or storage.

“If your business fits these criteria and you’re happy to share your story, please get in touch.”

A message from the Editor:

Thank you for reading this story on our news site - please take a moment to read this important message:

As you know, our aim is to bring you, the reader, an editorially led news site and magazine but journalism costs money and we rely on advertising, print and digital revenues to help to support them.

With the Covid-19 pandemic having a major impact on our industry as a whole, the advertising revenues we normally receive, which helps us cover the cost of our journalists and this website, have been drastically affected.

As such we need your help. If you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs just £27.55 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

As a subscriber, you will have unlimited access to our web site and magazine. You'll also be offered VIP invitations to our events, preferential rates to all our awards and get access to exclusive newsletters and content.

Just click here to subscribe and in the meantime may I wish you the very best.
